Demons By Design Interview

Interview with Colin of Demons By Design


1. How did you decide the style of music you wanted to play?


I WAS INSPIRED BY SOME OF THE GOTHIC-INDUSTRIAL-METAL I GREW UP LISTENING TO, AND WANTED TO

RECAPTURE SOME OF THAT ATMOSPHERE AND SPIRIT AND PRESENT IT IN A MODERN FASHION


2. What's an important message you want to portray through your work?


IT'S NOT REALLY ABOUT SENDING A MESSAGE, IT'S MORE ABOUT ENJOYING THE MUSIC AND THE ATMOSPHERE


3. What's the significance of the band name? 


IT'S A REFLECTION ON THAT A LOT OF THE PROBLEMS WE FACE, WE TEND TO CREATE FOR OURSELVES. 


4. State some of your earliest influences! 


THE CURE, KATE BUSH, DAVID BOWIE, IRON MAIDEN, HUSKER DU, THE DAMNED...THERE ARE SO MANY!!


5. What do you want to be remembered for? 


DOING WHAT I LOVE THE MOST - CREATING MUSIC!


6. Your favorite part of making a track? 


THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU HEAR AND FEEL THE INSPIRATION OR ABSTRACT CONCEPT TAKE FORM AND GO FROM A VAGUE IDEA TO SOMETHING TANGIBLE


7. One message for your listeners? 


GIVE MUSIC A CHANCE TO GROW ON YOU. SOMETIMES A SONG OR PIECE TAKES A FEW LISTENS TO REVEAL ITSELF FULLY :)


8. Tell us about your release "  Feed Me Like A Drug  "


I WANTED TO WRITE A CLASSIC GOTHIC LOVE STORY SEEN FROM TWO POINTS OF VIEW. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO ENLIST A FEMALE VOCALIST (KIRSTEN JØRGENSEN) WHO 

PERFECTLY COMPLEMENTED MY VOCAL PARTS. THE STORY UNFOLDS THROUGH THEIR DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW.

I ALSO WANTED TO CAPTURE SOME OF THE ATMOSPHERE AND VIBES OF THE GOTH/METAL I GREW UP WITH


9.  Tell me about your experience with Wormholedeath.


MY MAIN BAND, PERFECT NME, RELEASE THEIR DEBUT ALBUM THROUGH WORMHOLEDEATH, AND WE WERE IMPRESSED WITH THEIR HANDLING, COMMUNICATION AND THE RESPECT

OF OUR VISION. I WAS NEVER IN DOUBT I WANTED WORMHOLEDEATH TO HANDLE THIS RELEASE, TOO!!
